How to Comparison Shop with Google’s Autocomplete: Apartment Therapy

Untitled

We’ve all searched in Google…and we’ve all seen Google try to Autocomplete our search for us (it’s the grayed out text of what Google thinks you’re searching for). I thought it was a nifty time saver (sometimes), but not much more than that. But Apartment Therapy writes about another great use for Autocomplete…

The next time you’re making a big purchase, here’s how to use Google’s Autocomplete to help you comparison shop before you press “buy”.

Step 1: Go to google.com.
(You’ll actually need to head to the page, and not just use your browser’s search box to see Autocomplete results.)

Step 2: Type “Beats by Dre vs” into the search box, and nothing else.

Step 3: Look at the searches Autocomplete suggests-“Beats by Dre vs Bose,” and “Beats by Dre vs Sennheiser”-and check out some of the competition.

We’re all shopping addicts deep down, right 🙂 Here’s a cool tool to help us shop more efficiently!
